Hard-Core Headbutt Leads to MMA Double Knockout

This is what happens when using your head goes horribly awry. 

Two MMA fighters are both successful and horribly ineffective at the exact same time as they knock each other out with a horrendous headbutt. 

A tip of the hat to Yahoo Sports who posted this video with some of the scant details we have about this amazing moment. 

It apparently all went down in Poland in a weekend match between Marcin Mencel and Mateusz Zawadzki. When the dust cleared and the fighters were attended to, the fight was determined a technical draw. 

As you can plainly see, the headbutts were accidental and not part of either fighter's strategy. At least, that's what it looks like to me. 

It seems both go for a take down at the same time and drop to a crouch and attempt to engage, and that leads to quite the knockout blow for each. 

If you listen carefully, you can almost hear the brutal coming together of noggins. That's when one fighter hits the canvas and the other tries to get back on his legs. 

As Maggie Hendricks who writes for Yahoo Sports writes, you can see exactly why headbutting is prohibited in MMA fights. 

Those two are completely annihilated and it was all from an accidental maneuver that could have actually been much worse if used with full force. 

Sometimes, you don't want to use your head.
